Hillary's excellent African tour

Fresh from huffily telling an African student questioner that she, Hillary R. Clinton, was U.S. Secretary of State, not her husband, Clinton continues to set an example of how not to make friends and influence people in foreign lands, following the lead of her boss, President Barack  Obama (D).

Clemente Lisi of the NY Post reports on her most recent arrogant, defamation of the country she represents while uttering a slanderous lie.

Clinton caused another firestorm during her trouble-plagued Africa tour last night by drawing comparisons between political corruption in Nigeria and President Bush's contested election win nine years ago in Florida.

The Secretary of State made the bizarre comparison during a speech to a group of political activists in the Nigerian capitol of Abuja, another stop on her 11-day, seven-country tour of the continent.

She singled out former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush -- the former president's brother -- with helping the GOP grab the White House from Democrat Al Gore.

"Our democracy is still evolving. You know we had some problems in some of our presidential elections," she said. "As you may remember, in 2000 our presidential election came down to one state where the brother of one of the men running for president was governor of the state. So we have our problems too."

During his recent trip to Africa, Obama, a product of the corrupt Chicago Democratic regime and whose administration is fully stocked with the corrupters, also warned African leaders about corruption. Nothing wrong with that; hopefully both Obama and Clinton will bring the same message to Chicago, to Cook County and to Illinois on their next fund raising trips.

And then on to other Democratic strongholds of corruption such as New Jersey and Louisiana. In the latter state, a Republican is doing his best to deal with the corruption. Straight talk by Obama and Clinton might help. Or maybe the African leaders can return the favor and lecture the more corrupt areas of the U.S. on the dangers of corruption. And it is needed.

Back in Barack's and Michelle's and Rahm's and David's and Arne's and Valerie's hometown--and yes, Hillary's too (she grew up in a close in suburb), except for police and fire, city offices will be closed for an unpaid holiday or reduced service day. Not enough money to pay city employees; too much public money was diverted to uhm, other schemes lining the private wallets of some lucky beneficiaries. And in Chicago, the dead vote (Democratic), early and often. So do illegal aliens. Dogs and cats too.

So Hillary, return to your birthplace to lecture the natives on evolving democracy and the evils of corruption. They'll certainly benefit. Now tell us about Whitewater again.
